- Manoug Manougian Receives Kosove Distinguished Undergraduate Teaching and Service Award
- Professor Manoug Manougian received the Kosove Distinguished Undergraduate Teaching and Service Award at the Faculty Honors and Awards Reception on November 9, 2015. The award is bestowed by the USF Faculty Senate and recognizes exemplary teaching and service that supports the Kosove Society goals. The Kosove Society aims “to promote individual and collective social responsibility, societal change for the betterment of humanity, participation in academic disclosure; the principles of diversity and cohesiveness in the community; and the development of leadership skills.”
- Dima Khavinson and Catherine Bénéteau Awarded NSF Summer School Grant
- Dima Khavinson (PI) and Catherine Bénéteau (Co-PI) were awarded a $25,000 NSF grant to organize an international summer school on Spectral Theory and its Applications. The School will be held at Université Laval, in Québec City, Canada, from July 4-14, 2016. The goal is to prepare advanced undergraduate students for research involving spectral theory.
- Arthur Danielyan, et al., Awarded NSF Conference Grant
- Arthur Danielyan (PI) and Seung Yeop Lee, Razvan Teodorescu, Sherwin Kouchekian (Co-PIs) have received an NSF grant ($25k) to host a conference SEAM 2016: The 32nd Southeastern Analysis Meeting at USF (March 13-15, 2016). The Southeastern Analysis Meeting (SEAM) is one of the leading annual conferences on analysis, has a rich history and has had a sustained run of 30 meetings held every year since 1985 at various universities in the Southeast. SEAM is intended to disseminate and exchange the latest ideas and developments in classical analysis, complex analysis, and operator theory among junior and senior researchers. Participation of junior faculty and graduate students is strongly encouraged. More information about the conference, including a registration form, can be found at the website http://math.usf.edu/seam-conference/.
- Vilmos Totik Named AMS Fellow
- Professor Vilmos Totik was named a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society. He was recognized “For contributions to classical analysis and approximation theory and for exposition”. The Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics. Professor Totik is the first faculty member in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics to achieve this distinction.
- Wen-Xiu Ma is a Highly-Cited Researcher
- Professor Wen-Xiu Ma was selected for the Thomson Reuters 2015 list of Highly Cited Researchers. (The period of analysis used for the list pertain to publications from the period 2003-2013). He is among only four researchers from USF (as primary affiliation) that have been selected for this list. Highly Cited Researchers 2015 identifies the world’s most influential contemporary researchers across 21 scientific fields. Over three thousand researchers earned the distinction by writing the greatest numbers of reports officially designated by Essential Science Indicators (ESI) as Highly Cited Papers—ranking among the top 1% most cited for their subject field and year of publication, earning them the mark of exceptional impact.
- Nataa Jonoska is one of USF's Outstanding Researchers
- Professor Nataa Jonoska has received a 2015 Outstanding Research Achievement Award (ORAA). The annual awards are part of an open competition, judged by the USF System Research Council, to highlight professional acclaim received by the recipients from their national and international peers for their research. The 2015 award further recognizes faculty who have received truly exceptional recognition with preeminent awards, grants, or publications in top journals during the 2014 calendar year.
- Nataa Jonoska Awarded $200,000 Grant
- Nataa Jonoska was awarded a $200,000 collaborative grant from the National Science Foundation in the area of molecular programming. The goal of the project is to develop a methodology for environmental control within the DNA self-assembly process to direct molecular interactions in a preprogrammed manner. This will enable self-assembly of a variety of preprogrammed molecular shapes from the same set of building blocks, which can then serve as scaffolds for nanoelectronic components. The title of the project is “AF: Small:Collaborative Research: Programmed Cyclic Molecular Dancing on 2D Origami Lattices” and is in collaboration with chemist Dr. Nadrian Seeman from New York University.
- Gangaram S. Ladde Awarded $424,000 Grant
- Gangaram S. Ladde was awarded a $424,000 three-year grant from the U.S. Army Research Office in Stochastic Modeling. The title of the project is “Network-Centric Stochastic Hybrid Dynamic Time-Event Process Modeling, Methods And Analysis”. The grant includes a Post-Doc position and Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) components.
- Math Major wins $10,000 in Student Healthcare Competition
- Brian Hunter Jackson, an undergraduate mathematics major at USF, won $10,000 for proposing an innovative healthcare idea: managing disease pathology using cloud-based computer analysis. Hunter was the first-place winner in the third annual State of Florida Healthcare Innovation Competition. The goal of the competition is to encourage early-stage healthcare innovation and entrepreneurship in the state of Florida. The judging panel included experts from the fields of education, venture capital, medicine, and patent law and the program partners included Florida Blue, The National Academy of Inventors, and the USF Center for Entrepreneurship.
- Nataa Jonoska Named AAAS Fellow
- Nataa Jonoska is one of five USF faculty members to be named as a 2014 Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Election as an AAAS Fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers as recognition of their efforts to advance science or its applications. Dr. Jonoska is being honored as part of the Mathematics section for her distinguished contributions to theoretical analysis and experimental verifications in nanoscience, particularly for advancements in understanding information processing in molecular self-assembly.
- Nataa Jonoska Awarded $2 million Grant from the NIH
- Nataa Jonoska was awarded a $2 million five-year grant by the National Institutes of Health for her proposal RNA-guided Rearrangements: Experiments Coupled with Discrete Models. Her Co-Principle Investigators are Masahico Saito of our department and L. F. Landweber of Princeton University's Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology.
- Seung-Yeop Lee and Dmytro Savchuk Awarded Simons Grants
- Seung-Yeop Lee and Dmytro Savchuk each were awarded Collaboration Grants for Mathematicians. Each will receive a five-year $35,000 grant from the Simons Foundation.
